52 Reviews

When we think of ancient civilizations, more often than not we think of Rome. Yet before the Romans, there were the Etruscans who lived in west Italy from the 9th century onward. Their necropolises, or burial grounds, represent much of what we know about not only Etruscan culture but also burial practices from that ancient time.

Depictions of daily life can be found on frescoed walls, and many of the necropolises resemble Etruscan homes. The necropolis of Cerveteri alone has thousands of tomb structures which are arranged as if a small city. It can be navigated in largely the same manner, with paths, city squares, and even distinct neighborhoods.

The nearby Tarquinia necropolis has more than 6,000 tombs carved into rock. Interestingly, these tombs built for death are one of the greatest keys we have to understand how the Etruscans lived. Many of them are the only existing structure of their kind.

Etruscopolis: Once Were Etruscans

Etruscopolis: Once Were Etruscans

star-5

Etruscopolis is a trip in the bowels of the Earth, along the centuries in the Etruscan Civilization.It is an authentic artistic masterpiece which tries to defeat the strain of the centuries corroding and fading everything fleeting! It is a plunge in the past in the middle of decoreted tombs, homes, secenes of daily life, faithfully reproduced by the artist Omero "the last Etruscan". In fact in the large museum area of Etruscopolis, vases and bronzes of Etruscan inspiration are created not reproduced by OMERO who becomes in this way the continuator of the art of his ancient fathers. The artist Omero has managed to discover the secret of the archaic dough and the ancient manufacturing techniques, so that his creations are authentic even to the most sophisticated tests. For this reason, because of their strong resemblance to the original objects, they are sold with a certificate attesting its provenance like at British Museum or Metropolitan Museum in New york City.

Piazza Armerina and Caltagirone Private Tour from Catania – Sicily

Piazza Armerina and Caltagirone Private Tour from Catania – Sicily

The Villa Romana del Casale in Piazza Armerina is considered to be one of the most important exemplars of an official governmental residence, attributed to the elaboration and exceptional beauty of its architectonic and decorative elements. Dated back to 320-350 A.D., the villa most likely belonged to a member of Rome’s senatorial class, probably a governor of the Eternal City itself. On board of a Piaggio TriVespa you will visit Caltagirone a little town full of swirling patterns, vibrant colours, painstakingly detailed designs: wherever you go in Caltagirone this is what you will see! The highlight is undoubtedly the 142 steps of the Scalinata di Santa Maria del Monte. Here you will also taste typical Sicilian food (arancino and cannolo).

Cerveteri & Tarquinia

Cerveteri & Tarquinia "The Etruscan Necropolis" Private Tour from Rome

The Necropolises of Cerveteri and Tarquinia, inserted onto the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2004, constitute a unique and exceptional testimoney of the ancient Etruscan Civilization, the only urban civilization of the pre-Roman Age. These tumuli or burial mounds reproduce the homes in their various types of constructions; because they were built to mirror the Etruscan habitation itself, they are the only examples left of such in any form anywhere. The two necropolises of northern Lazio are identical replications of the Etruscans' urban grid. The necropolis of Banditaccia in Cerveteri was developed from the 9th Century B.C., and then expanded beginning with the 7th Century. Similar is the developmental history of the necropolis of Monterozzi in Tarquinia. Both the painted tombs of the nobles and those in more simple styles are singular and extraordinary testaments to Etruscan quotidian life, as well as their ceremonies, mythology and even their artistic capacities.
